- Dear Colleague: Reflections on 40 Years of HIVon June 9, 2021 at 9:15 pm
June 5, 2021 marks 40 years since the first official reporting, in CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), of five cases describing what later became known as Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and what is now HIV Stage III. On this 40th anniversary, we remember the more than 32 million people who have died from HIV worldwide since the start of the global epidemic, and the 38 million people currently living with HIV.
- Dear Colleague: CDC Releases New HIV Surveillance and Supplemental Surveillance Reportson May 27, 2021 at 9:42 pm
Today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published three new reports using HIV surveillance data: Estimated HIV Incidence and Prevalence in the United States, 2015-2019; Monitoring Selected National HIV Prevention and Care Objectives by Using HIV Surveillance Data-United States and 6 Dependent Areas, 2019; and Diagnoses of HIV Infection in the United States and Dependent Areas, 2019. To improve data interpretation and utility, these reports all feature data from the same timeframe: 2015-2019.
- Diagnoses of HIV Infection in the United States and Dependent Areas, 2019on May 27, 2021 at 5:03 pm
The annual surveillance report, published by CDC, summarizes information about diagnosed HIV infection in the United States and dependent areas. HIV surveillance data are used by CDC's public health partners in other federal agencies, health departments, nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, and the general public to help focus prevention efforts; plan services; allocate resources; develop policy; detect, monitor, and intervene in HIV clusters; and monitor trends in HIV infection.
- Estimated HIV Incidence and Prevalence in the United States, 2015-2019on May 27, 2021 at 5:02 pm
This report examines estimates of (1) HIV incidence, (2) prevalence (persons living with diagnosed or undiagnosed HIV infection), and (3) percentage of diagnosed infections among persons living with HIV (percentage of persons living with HIV who are aware of their infection) in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico for persons aged greater than or equal to 13 years. Numbers of persons aged greater than or equal to 13 years living with diagnosed infection are reported numbers, not estimates. These numbers are based on diagnosed cases with vital status information reported to CDC through December 2020. Prevalence estimates for the year 2019 are preliminary and based on deaths reported to CDC through December 2020.
